This afternoon I was nursing Falyn and noticed that Riley wasn’t in the living room. I asked Talia to go and see what he was doing. She found him up in his bedroom with the kitchen scissors cutting up one of Aidan’s books. I yelled at him to come downstairs and put him in time out. When Dan got home, he discovered that not only had Riley cut up the book, the had cut up the screen on the window in his and Jared’s room. He got another time out for that and I know had to move the scissors from a drawer in the kitchen to up high in the cabinet where the twins can’t get to them.
Falyn woke up at 2 am because of her cold. This is the third night in a row she has woken up in the middle of the night. I woke up to discover that I also have a bad cold and feel just horrible. I couldn’t get her to go back to sleep in the crib, so I took her downstairs. I tried rocking her, but an hour later she was still fussing. Finally around 3:30 I was able to get her to go to sleep by lying down with her on the coach. She woke back up around 5 am and I then took her back up to my bed and nursed her and we both fell back asleep. I had to get up at 7:00 to take a shower and get the boys ready. Aidan has preschool at 9 and I had to bring the twins and the baby along to take him there. Falyn cried some of the way there and most of the way back. I can tell that she is going to be one fussy baby all day.
